My research focuses on the interplay between finance and the real economy, i.e. the international financial drivers of real instability and the significant developments of international finance. I don't believe that financial markets are only a channel through which exogenous shocks are transmitted to the real economy. It can only explain a part of the real dynamics. Minsky's idea of an endogenous credit cycle gives a broader picture. I am also influenced by Aglietta's idea that the monetary system is a key driver of the credit cycle. That said, I use mainstream methodology to examine the different research questions.
I have been visiting Princeton University in 2014-2016. It was incredibly exciting. Before that, my first academic position was Lecturer at the Hong Kong UST in 2006-2008 and associate Professor at Rouen Business School and scientific advisor at OFCE from 2008 to 2013.
I have been a CEPR Research Affiliate since 2012 and I am currently chair of the Financial Markets Commission of the CNIS,. an independent body bringing together producers and users of the French public Statistics. I have been a member of Conseil d'Analyse Economique (Council of Economic Analysis), an independent advisory body reporting to the French Prime Minister from 2017 to 2019.
I am from Paris and yet I love outdoor activities (my last craze is kite-boarding). I have two amazing kids, both smart and funny.
